4 out of 5 eggsDecent for the price

Pros: -Relatively cheap
-Powerful chipset
-Front facing speakers
-Stylus support
-Build quality is nice
-Basically stock android
-HDMI out
-Firmware is on HP's site

Cons: -Speakers aren't outstanding by any means. They get pretty loud but the quality isn't any better than most other tablets
-Screen is pretty bad, contrast is quite low and a lot of light bleed around the edges.
-Weird software glitches. I was alerted to an update which ended up freezing the tablet. I was able to get it to turn back on but then the audio would break and some of the settings pages would freeze the tablet. ended up manually installing the updates via HP's site but none on reboot the tablet would just go to a black screen. Updates worked but things could have gone smoother.

Other Thoughts: If you absolutely need a stylus in a cheap tablet, then this is one of your only options. If you just need a good cheap tablet, there are better options.

4 out of 5 eggsnice tablet

Pros: it's very fast even. has 3 modes for the CPU max power, balanced and super saver. like the 16gb of on board memory, screen is blight and nice not alot of bloatware, has a powerful magnet on the back of it so easy to keep on the fridge or any metal surface. come with android 4.2.2 will upgrade to 4.3 and then 4.4.2 this does have GPS in it and works really well.

Cons: WiFi seems to only B/G not N like it shows in the spec's. powerful magnet like with any magnet careful how close it gets to other things like hard drives and monitors. this major headache is this doesn't support flash even after loading latest flash apk it still won't support it cause it's a tegra device.

Other Thoughts: i would have even it 5 star but biggest let down for me is it not being a wireless N device only B/G even know the box says it is B/G/N and that it doesn't support flash. Funny how my phone is 2 years older than this and running 2.3.6 and it supports flash is funny and it even works with wireless N. as for being a good e-reader and browsing and watch youtube video's it's great haven't tried the games yet.

4 out of 5 eggswifi problems

Pros: it's a fast does let you update to android 4.4.2

Cons: wifi problems is only thing had time to play with only had it about 3 hours first would not connect to my router no matter the settings even fully open but i could connect my phone with wifi hotspot and it could find it could see my router but couldn't connect. i found out way after i set my router from n only to ng mixed bang it's connected so im thinking this is not a 802.11b/g/n like it say and it's just a 802.11b/g

Other Thoughts: really hoping there's a fix or i did something wrong i updated everything the system update and all app are updated as well.

every tablet these days should wireless N

5 out of 5 eggsQuick update

Pros: So heres a quick update after having the device for quite awhile

- Android 4.4.2! There are some good and bad things, mostly good.
- I forgot to mention the camera, which takes decent pictures if your into that sort of thing.
- Battery life improved with 4.4.2. With medium usage throughout the day, i used to get a day if not a little more out of it. Now i charge about every other day. (i stopped watching so many movies on it, but standby consumption has dropped drastically.

the screen!

Cons: Lagdroid for a reason. The first immediate thing i noticed after 4.4.2 is hitting the home button or the active processes button while in an app instantly causes lag. This happens EVERYTIME. Though i suppose that's more of a software thing and not necessarily an hp screwup.

For whatever reason, the normal screen shots will just not work. I don't know whats causing it, it only tells me its unable to take a screenshot. But there are apps to fix that.

Ever since 4.4.2 the default android media player will stutter and crash and lag playing any sort of high def movies. In 4.2.2(the version it was shipped with) i did not have these issues.

Other Thoughts: I forgot to mention the camera on my first go around. The camera itself is a good one but it has no flash. What does that mean exactly?

It means that unless you get the perfect lighting or even just on the right kind of angle, you will get light that bleeds from where its coming from across the screen. Sort of like a watery effect but less brilliant.

Oh and not anything to worry about but it's extremely magnetic on it's back side. It's caught itself from falling off a radiator before. Don't know what's up with that but, keep it away from electronics! especially any sort of hard drive.

The 1gb of ram is a continuing issue where i have to clear memory after basically every app that's not in use or face lagdroids not so awesome speeds. The device has literally frozen up for minutes at a time. The OS in general i believe is the cause of being so memory hungry.

The stylus is starting to get annoying too. If i even push it in a little but whilst still being tucked away in it's slot it will pop open the stylus menu. It's gotten really sensative and i don't even use it.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Tablet!

Pros: Placement of the buttons is very appealing, and kind of a standard.

Battery life was pretty much on par with the 10 hour life. I watched a movie on Netflix from full, it went down to about 75 percent battery life after 2 hours. However when playing games that are using more of the processor, I noticed that it starts to diminish a little bit faster. Saying this however, the device has the ability to disable additional cores to help extend the battery life.

Additional microSD slot to expand memory is always a great feature.

The touchscreen is extremely responsive compared to other tablets I’ve used. Have not noticed a delay at all.

Front facing speakers which make for a more enjoyable movie playback. These speakers put off surprisingly good sound as well.

Runs a stock version of Android Jelly Bean, with a little bit of HP apps on it.

Writing with the stylus is extremely simple. As soon as you remove the stylus, an on screen indicator will ask if you’d like to use an application designed for the stylus. Overall sensitivity is great, and writing notes feels effortless. The tip on the pen allows it to glide over the screen without any kind of drag as well.

Cons: Build quality seems to be a little under par. You can squeeze the corner on the side with the microSD slot, and you will hear it crinkle a little bit. It can be rather difficult to get the power cord in/out sometimes, this is even more difficult with the case on it.

The corners where the plastic pieces meet, have a little bit of an edge on them. Not sharp, but it’s noticeable by feel.

The supplied power cord is 3 foot long, almost forcing you to purchase an additional cable if you do not have one already. I can hardly rest the tablet on my desk while charging, the cable is that short.

One thing I noticed immediately, the device will not pick up the 5 GHz band. Not really enough to take off an egg for this, but something to be noted.

Other Thoughts: When I opened the package, the tablet almost fell on the floor, it is not secured in the package too good!

I wish I had this in college to take notes on with the stylus!

I would not hesitate in the least to recommend this to friends/family members.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Fast processor, decent ram, VERY nice camera and 16gb space for a great price.

- The rear camera with nvidea tegras HDR processing takes great quality photos in any type of lighting.

- Great clear colorful screen, with very accurate multipoint touch detection which works surprisingly well, managed to start drawing with four fingers on the screen around an inch apart each and the tablet managed to keep detecting them properly even while running my fingers into each other.

- Stylus is easy and fun to use detection is great and can easily erase handwriting, this tablets definitely one of the best for notekeepers.

- Power saver functions of the nvidea tegra keep this tablet running for a long time with it enabled.

- Audio/Mic are great and the speakers are much louder than other tablets ive used, sleek design feels very sturdy.

- Wireless for streaming media to compatible wireless televisions and wireless printing.

- Has microSD slot for up to 32GB more space.

- Strong enough internal magnet's to stick this thing on a refrigerator its not slipping anywhere if on a metal surface.

Cons: - The rear 5mp camera has a varying random delay when taking a single shot photo. In single shot mode, after tapping to take a picture, ive had anywhere from 1.5 but usually 2 to 3.5 seconds delay before it would actually snap the photo, which is more than enough time to miss something happening that you're trying to photo. You CAN use rapid fire mode which has 0.5-1 second delay then snaps several photos but i dont want to have to delete a bunch of duplicates maybe i'm just being picky but its odd it can usually take 5 rapid photos faster than it can take a single shot in the same quality.

- The front facing cameras cheap 0.3MP is just plain horrible quality for 2014, not to mention most 0.3MP cameras look better than the one on this tablet, its also unusable indoors at night in 60w equivalent warm CFL lighting (the lighting seems to cause most cheap cameras to appear way darker).

- The rear camera lens is flat with the rear of the tablet, might make it much more prone to scratches.

- Strong internal magnet's. Yes its also a con, useful to keep tablet still but again i cant help but worry about the extra pressure this may create on the camera lens if the tablet was slid while on a metal surface.

- Battery life without power saver, the ad for the tablet states 'Up to 10.5 hours' newegg specs state 'Up to 7.25 hours' but both of those are likely only possible while the battery saver is on, without battery saver on i got about 5 hours just texting, taking pics, drawing & testing functions while brightness was set low from a full charge.

- Not a big fan of the tablets packaging, second tablet ive had that came with the screen pressed right against the box, a bad bump and the screen could be damaged quite easily if anything managed to poke that side of the box.

Other Thoughts: As far as the rest of the tablet goes its really great for its price, nice strong cpu good for multitasking, should be a really good tablet for most games since it has some of the best touch accuracy ive seen on a tablet, could use more ram though. I seem to typo more often on this tablet not sure if im just not use to it yet, or the fine touch detection triggers too fast before my fingers centered on a key.

Overall if it matches the specifications and the price that your looking for, its a great buy and you likely won't be disappointed *exceptions being the noted cons or maybe anything ive missed*.

Extra random test - sleep power usage was average around 9-10% power per 6 hrs of non use (with battery saver on) So it should be able to sleep 2.5-3 days.

5 out of 5 eggsHp Slate 7 extreme

Pros: - Tegra 4
- Nice clear IPS screen(though not full 1080P)
- Comes with stylus pen
- Decent sized battery
- Micro SD slot
- Decent speakers.
- Very sturdy and doubles as a good blunt object to defend yourself.

Android OS is my favorite, you can do anything you want to it and more.

Cons: Android 4.2.2. You won't see many of these which means slim chance of getting an upgrade to Android 4.4+

Only 1gb of ram.

Would have liked to see a little less bezel and a little more screen. Even if you had to reduce the size a little.

Other Thoughts: Ok so there are couple of things about this tablet which are pretty cool.

The Nvidia Tegra 4 is a 4+1 core cpu. The 4 cores are performace cores that are fast but use more power and a power saving core that is low power and handles most of the general tasks to save battery life.

Power saving feature is awesome. You can make it so it's max to 1,2 or 4 performance cores for saving the battery. (the single designed battery saving core is always active and switches on demand) it also limits fps in games to further increase battery. All in all, even with it on highest performance i got a days worth of battery life out of it. With some light gaming, a couple of movies, browsing facebook etc and still had 20% battery when i went to sleep.

Screen is beautiful. You don't need full 1080p on a 7 inch screen. Lower screen resolution gives better battery life as it's easier for the hardware to drive the screen(screen accounts for like 70% of your battery loss) but even being 800p the small text is sharp and clear and it's a beautiful IPS screen so you can view it at any angle and the colors are absolutely brilliant.

1GB of ram is a little low for the greedy android OS. But if you keep little things constantly open it's not much of an issue. Everything is really snappy and games are extremely fluid. The stylus imput pen is ok i guess, it automatically detects if its taken out and is about as good as these pens get.

The design is more functional than most tablets ive seen. Rather than relying on the sound to come out the back and bounce back, there are speakers in the front. They can get loud and are clear and i personally like this design.

The screen! Seriously, for $200 this screen is awesome and it's powered by some seriously capable hardware, i will definitely be recommending this tablet to my friends.

4 out of 5 eggsThis one is replacing the Nexus 7 for me

Pros: Very responsive screen, the stylus included also makes this touch screen very precise, the hand detection feature allows one to put hands on the screen without it interfering with stylus operation, makes note taking a much more realistic endeavor. Also the inclusion of the stylus makes sketching on the tablet a definitive possibility, this is the most useful feature in my opinion, it makes apps like evernote so much more useful and valuable.

The table also automatically detects when the stylus is removed from the holding slot and brings up relevant features for the stylus and allow OS enhancement specifically tuned for stylus use, which is a very useful feature.

The NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip is very responsive, has plenty of horse power to compete against the latest generation of the most popular Qualcomm chips but also allow finer steps power saving tweaking. This tablet has a utility to allow you to limit the cores to 1, 2, 3, or 4 to reduce battery consumption vs. processing power, further, it has a utility that allow you to fine tune wake up timing for each app installed on the tablet to allow longer battery life.

It also support external SD card, and since this is currently running android 4.2.2, there isn't the goof restriction on the write permission that showed up in Android 4.4.x, so you have full control over the inserted SD card which is a pro in my opinion against any current tablet supporting SD card running the latest Android. Functionally, there's little difference between android 4.2 and 4.4 to matter to any user. The screen has sRGB or native calibration, which allow user to make a choice in better color matching for most digital photos.

The battery life is also comparable to the Nexus 7 with all cores enabled.

From an appearance perspective, it is as good as the Nexus 7 but the casing of this tablet is more in the traditional line, it's hard to describe, but I have a preference towards the more traditional styling, so I actually prefer this tablet styling over the Nexus 7 which is more "modern" if there's a way to state it.

The sound on the slate 7 is also more powerful than the Nexus 7, is has dual front projection speakers while Nexus 7 has speakers on the back.

Cons: The screen resolution is 1280x800, it's not full 1080p. But in reality, a 7 inch screen read from a reasonable distance, the screen resolution makes virtually no difference. This is the most obvious short coming from the first glance. If you get really close and stare at the screen, the Nexus 7 has smoother fonts and better clarify due to higher resolution. However, for actual use, the lower resolution screen will give better battery life, and the reduction in resolution really is more of a tech spec ego issue than actual shortcoming.

The wifi 802.11N chip on this tablet only support the traditional 2.4GHz band, it does not operate on 5Ghz bands like the Nexus 7, which means if the 2.4GHz band is crowded in your home you'd get a bit less wifi throughput from this tablet. It does support N standard, just no 5GHz band. I had no issue with the wifi speed other than it could not find my 5GHz AP on my home router.

Due to it's less popularity, you will find there're much less variety of accessories available for this unit compared to Nexus 7, such as cases and screen protectors, but there are options that works good just not as many varieties.

The Unit only has 1GB of RAM (compared to 2 in Nexus), although in real operation this has not been any problem for any of the apps. The internal memory is 16GB, a 32GB internal storage option would be nice.

Other Thoughts: When I got the slate 7 extreme, I was a bit skeptical when comparing it to my Nexus 7. On the paper, the Nexus 7 is clearly superior, it has more RAM, larger internal memory option, latest Android version, a "faster" processor, and a 1080p native screen. However, my opinion of the HP slate 7 Extreme changed the moment I received the unit. Upon opening it, I immediately took a liking of the appearance and size of the unit. It is slightly longer and wider than the Nexus 7, make it a better more substantial hold in hand. The screen is of good quality, makes the screen resolution a non-issue in real operation. The inclusion of SD card is a HUGE bonus.

However, the most significant difference is the behavior of the touch screen. The Nexus 7 has been plagued in my experience with random touch screen irregularities, even after a replacement unit. This has also been widely observed on the net from a wide variety of sources. The Nexus 7 touch screen would sometime misbehave, making a lot of multi-touch operations such as properly pinch to zoom, or page flipping pages in E-reader or game control anything but nearly impossible. And it seems to stem from an inherent hardware design problem. The HP slate 7 on the other hand has a SOLID touch screen control, it has never misbehaved in any of its multi-touch functions, on that point alone, the HP slate 7 is a better unit than the Nexus 7. On top of that, I thought the stylus would be a trivial addition to the unit, but once I tried it out on the unit, I immediately believe it adds a tremendous amount of true functionally to the unit. Note taking and sketching on the tablet becomes a practical reality vs. gimmicky trick, and the precision control of on-screen element is also tremendously increased using a stylus vs. a finger.

In reality, I mostly compared this unit to the Nexus 7 unit which I owned prior to having the HP slate 7 extreme, I will in fact be selling my Nexus 7 soon. On paper the Nexus 7 is a better unit, but in reality, with much superior touch screen control and the addition of the stylus, the HP slate 7 is definitely a better "users" choice than the Nexus 7. I am glad I find a tablet I am fully happy with after many months of tolerating Nexus 7.

5 out of 5 eggsVery capable gaming and/or office productivity tablet for a great price

Pros: The HP Slate 7 Extreme, overall, is an incredible value for the amount of technology and capability available in a well-built 7” tablet.

The Slate 7 Extreme is a 7" capacitive display at a resolution of 1280x800. It features the very speedy, very capable quad-core Nvidia Tegra A15 CPU/GPU (actually called a system on chip [SoC]) operating at 1.8GHz. With the speedy Tegra processor and 1GB of DDR3 memory the Slate 7 Extreme will handle any Android game available in the marketplace, as well as full 720p and 1080p decoding, as well as fast browsing and productivity applications. The 16GB of storage space is beefy, but for those requiring even more space there's a MicroSD slot that can support up to 32GB more storage.

Front and rear cameras are 0.3 megapixels and 5.0 megapixels respectively, and the speakers on the tablet actually face forward and produce some pretty robust sound for their size. Watching movies/video and playing games certainly makes for an entertaining experience with the quality of the sound. The typical tablet features of a normal 3.5mm headphone jack, a microUSB slot (for both computer connectivity and charging), and micro HDMI slot are featured. Wi-Fi connectivity is 802.11b/g/n capable and there's also a Bluetooth radio.

Cosmetically the tablet is well-built and the included stylus also feels solid in the hand and is quite precise on the tablet screen. The stylus also tucks away inside the tablet housing when not used to keep the overall profile clean and keeps the stylus safe and secured while in transit. The back of the tablet has a soft material feel to it that provides good grip in the hand - I'm not worried about it inadvertently slipping out of the hand.

It's also nice that the included software package that HP loaded is not full of bloat. Tegra Zone is included as well as a neat app called “Stylus Labs Write” that is awesome for hand written notes/documents with the stylus. The normal load of Google Mobile Services is included (search, gmail, maps, play store, youtube, etc.). HP also includes the full version of Zen Pinball - a highly rated and fun pinball game. The Android version load is 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Battery life is rated at 10.5 hours on the beefy 4100mAh battery with this time varied based on specific application use, etc. In my testing I averaged between 8.5 hours to a little over 11 hours after several full charges and discharges. It's also nice that HP includes in the box the tablet, the stylus, a microUSB cable, and a nice 10 watt AC charger to quickly charge the tablet via the wall socket.

Cons: While not enough to warrant the loss of an egg, in my opinion, the Slate 7 Extreme comes out the box with Android version 4.2.2 loaded - colloquially known as Jelly Bean. It is the hope of this reviewer, as well as all other Android tablet owners out there from all other manufacturers, that when the latest, stable version of Android is released to the public that it will be available to them. While I have no idea if or when HP decides to push out the latest (as of this writing) version 4.4 KitKat, I am confident that HP will do it in time being that HP is a major player in the personal computing marketplace. Moreover, Android 4.2.2 is very robust and will fully satisfy one’s needs in terms of gaming and productivity.

Since the Slate 7 Extreme features the Tegra A15 SoC, which is based on the ARMv7-A architecture, and that it has 1GB of DDR3 memory, the tablet easily meets the hardware requirements defined by Google in order to run 4.4 KitKat. The Slate 7 Extreme can absolutely run 4.4 if HP decides to release it. Again, no loss of an egg for this.

Other Thoughts: Overall, you would be hard pressed to find another Android tablet in the marketplace that offers quite robust and capable features for the price in an attractive package. The ability to game any game in the Android market, and the increased productivity with the included stylus makes the Slate 7 Extreme a great companion for everyday use, travel, etc.

If you're considering a modern tablet the choice available is quite large, and I seriously recommend including the Slate 7 Extreme at the upper end of your list of considerations. Well done HP!

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing Device, Needs Update to Unleash the Beast!!!

Pros: Does everything I could imagine an Android Device doing. Has Front and Rear Cameras, Speakers/Sound are Great, Beautiful Screen and Video, has Micro SD Port for Loading up to 32GB Class 10 Micro SD Cards. Packaged Software is Pretty Good, not too much pre-loaded software that I wouldn't use. Apps Open Fast and Browser Operates Quickly.

Cons: I would say that the only Con of the 7 Extreme is that HP has not had any Android Software Updates on this Tablet to date. This Tablet has the "Horse-Power" to be updated, so I'd expect it to be update in the near future to Android 4.3 or 4.4,........At least I'm hoping!!!
